Default Home from hospital!!!!!

My surgery went well, that night was up and did 2 laps around the nurses station. Pain med helps so it doesn't hurt to bad moving around. I did find out I had sleep apnea but since I shoud be losing weight I won't have to deal with it long. Now I'm just trying to get all my nutrition in a find out what my pouch can tolerate. I just wanted to thank all of you who have been thru this, because with out your knowledge I would been totaly lost. sorry for all the words I spelled wrong it's the pain med LOL.
